Radical Reference

I finally joined Radical Reference.

From their website:

"…librarians are more freedom fighters than shushers."

--Carla Hayden, Ms. Magazine online

Mission Statement: Radical Reference is a collective of volunteer library workers who believe in social justice and equality. We support activist communities, progressive organizations, and independent journalists by providing professional research support, education and access to information. We work in a collaborative virtual setting and are dedicated to information activism to foster a more egalitarian society.

Radical reference originated as a service provided by volunteer library workers from all over the United States to assist demonstrators and activists at the convergence surrounding the Republican National Convention in New York City August 29-September 2, 2004.

Basically, if you have a question, a librarian will find you the answer!

How great a ministry is that? Librarians from across the country coming together for social change. So go ahead, post away!

I love this post! Yes- librarians are great! (I am not one, but I am friends with many and do I ever love the ones I encounter at our great local library.)
